Top 5 Wednesday – Problematic Faves

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). I’ve talked about some of my problematic faves before, but this post brought some things to light for me and made me think about the trash that I seem to like. Ha. I can’t help it – I know that some of these are inherently problematic, and while that doesn’t make it better, I at least *say* these things when I recommend the books. In any case – here’s my list!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Genre Bending Books

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). This was a fun one for me! I have never really thought about books that bend genres, but I’m thinking about it now! I didn’t realize how many books could be considered genre benders that were already on my ‘Read’ list on Goodreads. So anyway, here we go!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Non-Horror Books that Scared Me

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). Like the last Top 5 Wednesday that I posted (sorry about last week), I interpreted this a little differently than was maybe intended. I’m including books that scared me in the sense that my adrenaline was up, I couldn’t stop reading because I feared for my characters’ lives, that kind of thing. Anyway! Let’s do this thing!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Creepy Settings

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). I interpreted this topic a little differently than I’m sure a lot of people will, because I don’t read horror. It freaks me out too much, and reading is supposed to be fun. So! This topic has become sort of my own thing – creepy settings in books that aren’t creepy on their own. Anyway, you’ll see!Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday – Books Featuring Witches

Happy Hump Day – it’s Top 5 Wednesday! As a reminder, Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly roundup of cool/fun bookish things that is hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. You can visit the Goodreads group for topics (and such, as Sam always says). I had a lot more trouble with this topic than I’d like to admit, because I love witches! But so many of the books are on my TBR, meaning I haven’t actually read them yet. Boo on me and my busy reviewing schedule. In any case, I came up with 5 plus one bonus and tada! Witches! Happy October, everyone!Read More »
